• Peach County High School CTAE Program & Awards 

    The Peach County High School Career, Technical, and Agriculture Education (CTAE) Program prepares students for their next step after high school. Whether it's college, starting an exciting career or maybe even joining the military, our students are a step ahead!  The CTAE Pathway course offerings at the high school are diverse, cover a variety of high-demand career options and they are excellent environments for students to immerse themselves in engaging, hands-on learning experiences to better prepare them for gainful, fulfilling employment.

    The Peach Regional Chamber of Commerce supports the Peach County High School CTAE Program in various ways. We believe in the importance and value of a highly-skilled, able and willing future workforce and as such, we've established an incentive program to encourage and celebrate the top Pathway Completers in the CTAE program. 

    In an effort to recognize and celebrate the successes of the top CTAE students at Peach County High School, one student from Agriculture, Business & Management, Finance, Law & Public Safety, Automotive, and Health Care will be selected as the Pathway Star from their Pathway.  From these six Pathway Stars, a single student will be selected as the CTAE All-Star Student.  These deserving winners will be recognized for their hard work with a plaque and a monetary award at the CTAE ALL-STAR AWARDS event.  All winners, their families and Pathway instructors will be invited to attend this special event.  The CTAE ALL-STAR winner will select the STAR INSTRUCTOR.
